The Hot Velvet Henchman & his CReAtor: always ‘amazing!’


“Hmmm, seems Thorin 6277 on tumblr says Richard is ‘amazing’ in the Pinter/Proust reading tonight . . .”

Ladywriter murmured aloud as she browsed through the latest email alerts from RA blogs to which she subscribed. She gave an inner sigh, feeling more than a little wistful, imagining herself sitting in the audience of the NYC theater . . . seeing RA, reportedly all in black, clean-shaven and still longer-haired.  Yummy. And wearing an eye patch at one point.  Sounds positively rakish . . .

A loud sniff broke her little reverie. “Of course, many have said the same thing about me.”

LW looked up into the well-stubbled visage of her favorite So Not Dead Dark Knight, his noble brow slightly furrowed.


“Yes, Sir Guy, and so you are. Amazing. And still my favorite ChaRActer . . .” She smiled and held out her hand. “And while the dear CReAtor is far away in the Big Apple, you, my Hot Velvet Henchman, are right here.”

He smiled that dark angel’s smile and LW felt her toes curling with pleasure.

“And I shall always be here with you, my lady,” Sir Guy rumbled in his deep, delectable baritone, before taking Ladywriter’s hand in his own and kissing it.


Richard Armitage and his awesome array of ChaRActers: always AMAZING. And just maybe, one day, LW will get to know what it’s like to be in the presence of the CReAtor himself.  Until then, she can dream. And hang with the handsome hottie from Nottie. 😉  RA, as always, so proud of you! 😀




RA gets thumbs up in Flickfilosopher’s 2014 Film Preview!



(Thanks to Berta Martinez for posting link to the blog on FB)

I don’t know about you, but I do get tired of the seemingly endless output of Hollywood films which are reboots, sequels, cartoon (and not even good cartoons. Come on . . . the Smurfs??) or comic book-related . . . so something a little more original is a welcome thing.

Apparently the folks at Flickfilosopher agree, providing us in the above link with a list of films slated to debut in 2014 that are a bit more original. And guess what is one of their most anticipated? I will give you a hint.


Yup. “Into the Storm,” formerly known as “Black Sky” aka the lo-o-o-ng-awaited “Tornado Movie” which was greatly delayed when their FX company went belly up and a scramble took place to get the SFX completed.

Here’s what Flicklosopher had to say:

Into the Storm (August 8): Early buzz on this one pegs it as a found-footage(?) Twister writ large, with remarkably realistic FX, or so some early audiences have revealed. Plus, it stars Hobbit It Dwarf Richard Armitage, already well-drooled-over by lovers of Brit TV. He deserves to be a huge Hollywood star, and maybe this will be the flick that does it for him. [IMDb]

I remember reading some of the preview audience members’ reactions, and they did seem pretty positive. And the thought of not having to wait until December to see RA on the big screen again–not the mention the possibility our hero actually survives this one *sniff*–makes me eager to go, well, “into the storm.”
